Pushing Intelligence to Where Data Lives

Today’s architecture requires large data transfers between the CPU, GPU, SSD, and RAM. But when additional SSDs are added to a server, CPU performance causes a data bottleneck.

SmartSSD® Computational Storage Drive (CSD) adds processing power to the SSD itself, drastically reducing data movement and accelerating lightweight computing. This provides immediate insights and allows the concurrent processing of high volumes of data.

"Driven by the need to boost performance for applications such as analytics and machine learning, computational storage is an emerging architecture in which data is processed in situ in storage, using processors that are more efficient than x86 server processors at handling certain tasks. Samsung makes a strong claim that it is effectively the godfather of computational storage."

“We were the first cloud computing provider to deploy computational accelerators. And the first to utilize containerized environments on bare metal machines. In fact, we hold multiple patents for advancements in cloud computing. But it’s never been about academic achievements. Everything we create is with a singular purpose—to deliver fast, economical solutions that help our clients solve their toughest challenges.”
